“My business is to paint what I see not what I know is there”
J.M.W. Turner

As a Peak District based photographer there is nothing more enjoyable for me than to explore my local surroundings, drawing inspiration from the light, colour, shape and texture of the beautiful Derbyshire landscape. 

While keeping an open mind on interpretation remains key, the list of inspirational artists behind my abstracts and more representational photography is endless, from Turner, Rothko and Hepworth, to Hopper, Godwin and Blakemore for example, but it’s the landscape itself which will always remain my biggest influence.

Moving to the heart of the Peak District has brought new and exciting challenges for me through local projects, including Journeys Through The Landscape, in which I explore the views, rivers, people and history within the area. However, by also looking beyond my local surroundings, both in the UK and overseas, it’s not only broadening my horizons, but it’s beginning to open up new doors in terms of my creative practise.

When I’m not in my studio experimenting on the computer (or more recently with the paintbrush), I’m either out making work for myself, very often with nothing more than my phone, or I’m enjoying the opportunity of encouraging the community to do the same, by looking a little deeper into the landscape, with a particular interest in how they also visually respond to the world around them. 

As a result, in 2008, I founded The Image Club, which provides non-competitive group forums for discussions on image making, through the sharing of ideas and knowledge, in relaxed and informal environments. Currently I’m working on projects with both Derby and Sheffield Hospitals including co-facilitating two such groups for members of NHS staff, providing them with numerous opportunities and social activities to relax and enjoy photography together, while fully supporting wellbeing in the workplace and beyond.

I offer coaching, talks, exhibitions, commissions, visual workshops, walks with the camera, collaborative and community focused projects, as well as my own range of bespoke limited-edition prints and greetings cards. For more information, I invite you to visit my website.
